Although Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is still a couple months away from release, there is already interest in a third outing for the galactic superheroes (who are also confirmed to play an integral part in Avengers: Infinity War). Luckily, director James Gunn has reassured fans that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 will happen, but he is uncertain at this point if he wants to helm the project.
While sitting down with Complex to promote this upcoming weekend’s horror movie The Belko Experiment (which Gunn scripted), he stated: “There will be a Guardians 3, that’s for sure. We’re trying to figure it out. I’m trying to figure out what I want to do really, that’s all it is. I got to figure out where I want to be, what I want to spend the next three years of my life doing. You know, I’m going to make another big movie; is it the Guardians or something else? I’m just going to figure it out over the next couple of weeks.”
